... PICTURE SET CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE|
CLICK-> Monarch Yellow 1972 GTO sport coupe, right front view. This rare goat has the optional Vinyl Body Side Mouldings. This keeps the sides of the car nice and clean from parking lot door dings.
CLICK-> This is a green 1972 Luxury Lemans with a "The Jury" option. Whoa, hold it. "The Jury" option was done on only 26 silver 1970 LeMans's in 1970 by Stampede Pontiac Buick in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. They all had blue interiors and 1969 spoilers. They did have the bumble bee stripe and fireball graphics on the rear fender like this one.
CLICK-> Hey, What happened to "The Jury" stripes? This is a Luxury LeMans. You can tell from the front because of the chromed valance panel under the bumper.
CLICK-> This 1972 Luxury LeMans came from the factory wearing a lighter shade of green called Springfield Green.
CLICK-> This 1972 Luxury LeMans has a big green bench seat inside.
CLICK-> Wilderness Green 1972 GTO hardtop. Its original title was issued in Maryland 11/01/71.
CLICK-> Wilderness Green 1972 GTO hardtop, right front view. There are only three exterior changes between the 1971 and 1972 GTOs. Number One: the front grilles are recessed with little black squared openings. Number Two: the front signal lamps have chrome crosshairs over them. Number Three: functional air vents are located in the fenders behind the front wheels.
CLICK-> Wilderness Green 1972 GTO hardtop, left rear view. This GTO has vinyl body side moldings and Rally II wheels.
CLICK-> Wilderness Green 1972 GTO hardtop, right rear view.. This was the darker of the two green paints offered in 1972.
CLICK-> Wilderness Green 1972 GTO hardtop, interior view. The woodgrain in the steering wheel matches the woodgrain on the dash. This GTO has the Rally Gauge Cluster with the in-dash Tach, original AM/FM stereo radio, and 8-track tape player. The little box with the knob under the dash to the right of the steering column is a vintage aftermarket delay wiper control.
CLICK-> Take a look at this door. It's got the optional driver's side remote control mirror and power door locks. It also has the optional LeMans Sport interior which comes with bucket seats and these door panels. Because of the pull strap on this panel, the GTO nameplate is not present on the door.
CLICK-> Wilderness Green 1972 GTO hardtop, engine view. The chrome valve covers and air cleaner lid were dropped in 1971. Here you can spot the underhood lamp on the firewall. It is turned on. Just to the right of the lamp, is the lamp switch. When the hood is raised, the switch plunger goes up and turns on the light. There appears to be mechanicals for a cruise control just to the right of the snorkel on the right.
CLICK-> This is susposed to be a copy of the original build sheet. I'm not sure if this is really what they looked like. However, it is a nice list of options for this car. The GTO was an option on the LeMans in 1972. I don't see anything about the remote mirror or power door locks.
CLICK-> Red 1972 LeMans convertible owned by Kevin Kelley from Germantown, Tennessee. Kevin comments, "I just purchased from a great owner of 16 years. It's an all original 72 convertible w/ rare Endura option. I have no desire to mess up a great original LeMans and make it a fake GTO. If there would have been a GTO convertible in 72, this would have been it. It's got the original interior with complete gauges and A/C. Great running and sounding! I will keep it as is."
CLICK-> Red 1972 LeMans convertible with top up. It's got a set of Honeycomb Wheels.
